This title is the most questionable of all claims. Mostly due to the fact that over 40 and weightloss are not compatible. It’s like your body is saying well you have had a nice run at losing weight, and now your time is up.
I remember when I was around 35, and folks told me that my metabolism was going to change in a few years, so I better work hard now to keep it woke. That always made me laugh because I thought to myself, “shut up, you don’t know my body, and just because your body failed you doesn’t mean mine will collapse on me.”
Now let me fast forward a few years and tell you about my current 43-year-old state. I woke up one morning, and everything was fitting tight against my body. I tried to squeeze on a pair of pants and tumbled to the ground, fighting to pull these jeans up. I thought okay if I can just pull them up past these thighs and colossal butt, then I can suck my stomach in and zip up. Well, that didn’t work. Totally impossible to suck in your legs and butt, so those jeans were placed in the back of my closet. I didn’t want to see them nor acknowledge that they were ever worn.
I instantly became furious with my body and felt betrayed. Like how could you turn on me like this and I’ve been so good to you? Now, all of a sudden, if I have one good meal, I blow up like a beached whale. Then it takes me months and months of weight training and hours upon hour of cardio to lose 5 pounds.
Well, that was then, and this is now. I have spent years formulating a plan that will attack fat and help you create a lean, powerful body. I want myself and all of you to focus on healthy foods, learn what makes your body feel alive. When you can pinpoint the foods that hinder your spirit, then you are ready for change. After all, what you eat is 80% of the weight loss battle. But if you are a woman over 40 and have had more than one child ignore that percentage. You betta focus on food 90% of the time…at least that’s what it feels like for me.
You could have chosen any blog, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
Give me 6 weeks for you to say so long to unhealthy habits.
